    Daiwa Anybody seen or fished these yet

    @F.I.S.H.Y What line and how many yards did you put on your TW Lexa 400? I was able to see one yesterday at Dana Landing Market and put it side by side with a 400-HD (I have a 400-HD) and the TW is much smaller and no doubt lighter too. They only had a Lefty, so it stayed in the case when I left.
